Ruger has announced the addition of the 9 mm Luger to its SR1911 Lightweight Commander-style line of pistols. Like the .45 Auto version, the 9 mm version features a 4.25" Commander-length slide and an aluminum frame that weighs almost a half-pound less than the all-stainless steel Commander-style configuration. This model also comes with a new look, including black rubberized grip panels and a gray anodized frame. 

All of these features, now combined with the 9 mm chambering, adds up to an ideal concealed-carry gun. The 9 mm SR1911 is thin, small and light enough (29.3 ozs. with an empty magazine) to be comfortably carried every day, yet still employs the outstanding ergonomics and shootability of the classic 1911. The 9 mm Luger cartridge also provides higher magazine capacity and less recoil than the larger .45 Auto. 

Ruger's American-made, CNC machined SR1911 comes fully equipped with upgraded features like Ruger's classic series 70-type lockwork, genuine Novak LoMount Carry three-dot sights, a lowered and flared ejection port, titanium firing pin and a precision machined barrel with matched bushing. These pistols also come standard with an integral plunger tube, beaver-tail grip safety, extended magazine release, oversize thumb safety, skeletonized hammer and skeletonized aluminum trigger for fast, accurate shooting; all this without the price tag of a full custom gun. 

The pistol ships with two 9-round magazines, a bushing wrench and a cable-locking device.
